After that point toxicity becomes a major concern for damage to the body.

Which is why all one would need to extend this 30 minute time limit is a CO2 scrubber affixed to the body wherever appropriate.

Fill the lungs with fluid (and wear something insulated) and we're talking some pretty radical possibilities here.

Better, more illustrated article

And they use a simple homogenizer to make it at a rate of 4 liters every 10 minutes (from the paper.)

No reason this can't be a semi-permanent approach if the CO2 is scrubbed somehow.

And yes, what I am describing is effectively an artificial lung.

well, baby in womb 'breath' in almost 'airless condition'.

No they don't. Their lungs don't "inflate" untill the baby's born, so they don't breath before that. Up untill this point, they get all of their oxyginated blood through the umbilical cord.

so, theoretically its posible to replicates this process for adult human ?

replace the cord with tubes, pump needed oxyginated blood with it, etc... etc... ?

so, is the liquid breathing part of LCL in evangelion universe actually theoreticaly possible?

More then theoretically possible... Whilst the diving suit in The Abyss movie was scifi, the rat breathing the flourocarbon solution was real. It's been known about for many years but the technology is still very much in its infancy.

Just imagine what they will be able to do when it's all grown up.
